Taco Bell is looking to expand its vegetarian offerings even further by testing out its own plant-based protein creation called the “Cravetarian” Taco.
According to Insider, the new vegan protein is made of a blend of peas and chickpeas and will be placed inside a crunchy shell before being topped with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, and sour cream.
If the test item is successful it means virtually anything on Taco Bell’s menu can be made vegan by swapping the plant-based protein into chalupas, burritos, and nachos, Insider reports.
